Do the double


Trained by Karl Burke, You're Fired hit a poor run of form in some handicaps during the summer but looked a different prospect when finishing second in a Listed contest at Kempton last time after three months off. On that form, he's capable of winning the Conditions Stakes (2.20 Lingfield) and early odds of 11/4 look generous.


Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino (left) will be delighted with a fine performance from his side on Wednesday, which ended Chelsea's attempt at a historic 14 successive Premier League wins. There's momentum behind Spurs and that can be carried through to tomorrow's FA Cup tie at home to Aston Villa, who sit mid-table in the Championship. At 10/11, the Londoners can land the half-time/full-time result.
